What About Philippine National Bank?

The Philippine National Bank (PNB) was created as a government bank in 1916, but it started getting privatized in 1989 when its stocks were listed in the stock exchange.

In 1996, PNB became a private bank when the government's ownership was reduced to 46%.

In 1999, a group led by Lucio Tan acquired 35% of the bank and increased its ownership to 69.32% in 2000. It further increased its ownership to 77.43% in 2005.

In 2007, the government sold all its remaining shares in PNB to the public.
